Chelsea’s Lack of History Is Why I Joined Liverpool- Alisson

After Karius' nightmare performance, Jurgen Klopp broke the world transfer record for a goalkeeper in the summer, spending £67m on Alisson from Roma while Karius was allowed to join Besiktas on a two-year loan deal. I really wanted to be part of that history.

"I've also admired Liverpool's history".

"I chose Liverpool for the same reasons I went to Roma when I left Brazil".

When Alisson officially signed for the Reds on the 19th July 2018, Maurizio Sarri had been in place for just five days, after the prolonged departure of Antonio Conte, and Alisson explained: "Chelsea were changing their manager and not playing in the Champions League. I don't celebrate it like any other goal", the 26-year old admitted.

"What's life if not fighting for your dreams?".

One of the main reasons Liverpool now sit top of the Premier League by four points is their incredible defensive record.

Karius impressed in spells for Liverpool after dislodging Simon Mignolet in goal during the second half of last season but Alisson has proven to be an upgrade since his arrival in the summer.

And in a fresh interview with Four Four Two, and says he felt bad for Karius when he watched his struggles against Real - given he's a member of the goalkeeper's union.

"I know what goes through the mind of a goalkeeper in those kind of moments", he continued, "I was so sad to see what happened to Karius - it could have happened to anyone".

But the truth is, if Karius didn't make those errors and Liverpool won the Champions League, Alisson may not be at Anfield right now.

While they may be out of the FA Cup courtesy of a shock defeat to Wolves, a game against Brighton on Saturday is a great opportunity for them to bounce back after a blip against Manchester City who closed the gap between them and Liverpool.
